NDP Leadership #109

SamuelOlivier - agree that Singh has some good debating skills. He may be a two trick pony, but he did seem to expand his rhetoric today. This was a follow up of an earlier attack on Topp in that Topp has not thought through his platform and his actions could have unintended consequences - and quoting the page number and everything made Singh look more knowledgeable than Topp. Also, Singh managed to bring in indirectly his support for a woman's right to choose and I liked his line about fiscal conservatives being extinct.

Weird how the PM keeps coming from a non-sitting leader. Long term vision is much clearer from the rear view.

Sun TV and Jason Kenney stage fake citizenship ceremony

"Let's do it. We can fake the oath."

Quote:
Six federal bureaucrats were drafted to pose as new Canadians for a citizenship reaffirmation ceremony broadcast on the Sun News network, an event requested by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney's office.

 

The bureaucrats smiled and held Canadian flags as the TV hosts referred to a group of 10 people as “new Canadians” that had “finally” received their citizenship.

 

 

See on-air apology :(
